Thousands of students around the world have found a great new way to prep for the TOEFL® test. It’s called the TOEFL® MOOC (Massive Open Online Course)—and it’s free! There have been 2 popular MOOC sessions held so far. The next one starts on January 25, so here are 5 reasons to be part of this growing trend! 

Reason 1: The Instructors

The instructors for the MOOC are TOEFL® test experts. They are there to help you get more familiar with the test sections and the types of questions that you’ll be asked. And you’ll have opportunities to ask questions and join in on discussions. 

Reason 2: The Lessons

Did you know there are 10 different types of reading questions? Well, there are. And the MOOC walks you through all of them. There are several videos in the course that will give you insights into each type of question. The same goes for all of the test sections. Instructors will give an overview of the Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing sections and then real examples, so that you can get a better feel for what to expect on test day.

Reason 3: The Practice Questions

One of the great things about this course is that you will have the opportunity to practice with real past questions from all 4 sections of the test. Plus, your Speaking and Writing responses may be selected to be scored by a real TOEFL® rater. This practice can help you work toward improving your score and developing your English-language skills.

Reason 4: The Test Day Info

During the final week, the instructors will go over how to register for the test, what identification is required, how you will receive your scores and how you'll send your scores to universities.

Reason 5: The Discount
